One of the big pluses of living in the Pacific Northwest is the abundance of natural areas all around us, even in urban and sub-urban settings. Some of us have property adjoining the woodlands, while some have lush ravines and streams flowing through their environs. This beauty is sometimes, marred by piles of yard waste dumped across the fence into the natural area.
I recently wrote an article on Dangers of Dumping Yard Waste in Natural Areas. It was published on Woodinville Patch, an online news and information site (owned by AOL). Do read it to learn how yard waste dumping can impact our local environs and what we can do to preserve the natural areas.
